Volunteerism is the life blood of Sierra Madre. 
Without volunteers, the events that we look 
forward each year would never happen, such 
as the upcoming Art Festival, The Winter 
Village, The Wistaria Festival and of course, 
the 4th of July parade. Equally as important 
are the dedicated city hall staff who go 
above and beyond the call of duty to serve our

recognition ceremonies into one event. The

Dr. William "Bill" White was a special member of 
the Sierra Madre community who passed away in 
October of 2022. 

Many people know of Dr. White through his 50+ 
years of local medical practice, but perhaps an 
even larger number knew him because of his involvement 
with the community, particularly the 
Sierra Madre Historical Society and the Mount 
Wilson Trail Race Committee. Bill could often be 
found at Lizzie's Trail Inn where he was happy to 
share his encyclopedic knowledge about the Mt. 
Wilson Trail and the history of the surrounding 
mountains. He was just as happy spending time 
working on the trail and, of course, sharing anecdotes 
about the trail's history with passing hikers. 

Bill was a great friend of the Sierra Madre Search 
and Rescue Team and is the Team's first honorary 
member. It would not be unusual for Team members 
to be working around the Rescue Station and 
have Bill stop by to swap stories and see how we 
were doing. 

Last weekend, the Team was honored to join in 
the dedication of a trail sign above First Water on 
an original section of the Mt. Wilson Trail. Our 
thanks goes out to Bob Spears for coordinating 
our probationary members to haul the sign to its 
location, and for installing it.
